Got to kill that music during the interview with Rain Irving. Makes it too hard to follow what is being said, and if I didn't know better, I'd assume it was the band While Heaven Wept. Also take the shaking camera effect down a couple notches. Other than that, loved getting to hear from Rain although not being a cook myself, I won't attempt to butcher his delicious Holy Diving Scallops :)
